Thanks for your reply RR. One day I would like to visit Ontario and Niagara Falls.

Such great photos 8)

Renegade Runner- lovely waterfall with bridge; is that in the Pacific Northwest?

Sporgon- really like your 3rd shot; nice water reflections and great leading lines!

shutterwideshut-  Wow! so beautiful and peaceful...unusual colors. I need to get out more with my 7D and EF-S 10-22mm :)

Thanks bro. The EFS10-22mm is one of those underrated glasses in the Canon lens line-up but I find it as an outstanding lens for a crop body such as the 7D. In the Philippines, colors like the one in the image happen quite often during sunrise and/or sunset. Too bad, I am based in Singapore though.  : :)

LMAOROTF To Destin and rpt!....
How could I not have understood a guy named rpt and his RGB ramblings.  Too funny. I got it. Very astute and brilliantly funny rpt! Too bad it was over my head. :-(
Happy to note you had a good laugh :)

I really liked the first of the three Destin posted. It is superb!

Wow, this is odd.... I can't seem to get my posts to work when I attach a photo :( Am I missing something?

Kountze Morning by param_s, on Flickr

Param, I like this image but it feels a little artificial to me... I'm not sure if the snow is too white or the sky is too saturated, but it seems to need just the slightest of adjustment to me.  I just can't pinpoint what it is... Of course, maybe it's just me!  Overall, I do really like it though.  What a beautiful morning that was!

I am just guessing - don't take notice if you think I am wrong...

I think your eyes are drawn to the lower one third where everything in the foreground is in focus. This is in stark contrast to the upper two-thirds of the picture. However as the contrast of the lower portion is higher than that of the upper portion by a factor (I am guessing) greater than 1.5 (inverse of 2/3), and the snow provides such a compelling contrast background, you end up looking down. Force yourself to look at the sky keeping the lower one third out of direct sight and you will see what I am talking about (I hope).

When I see this image, I see two pictures - one with the lower part with the contrast and the second with the sky - I like the two pictures. I guess it does not work as a single picture for some... See, it does not "lead" you up a path to an object of "interest"... But then that is art - makes you think... What am I saying? I am am Engineer! ;)
